LAWRENCE – Several Central Catholic High School students from Greater Newburyport have been named AP Scholars.

The students are among 306 from the school who took 677 Advanced Placement exams in 26 subject areas this spring. These scholars achieved scores that exceeded state and global averages, led by the 118 students named AP Scholars.

The students’ success on the college-level AP exams is particularly notable because they completed the final coursework remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic — a reflection of the commitment and hard work of the students and their teachers, according to a press release.
